"That old saw by William Gibson, "The future is already here, it's just not very evenly distributed," is true. But I think I mean it the opposite way that he meant it. For Gibson, the rich and privileged get the future first. But when we looked at tools of digital surveillance and social control, the future comes first to the marginalized and exploited: poor and working-class communities, people of color, migrants (especially those who are without legal status), people who live in war zones, etc." -- Virginia Eubanks
